Dr. Jack Kevorkian left the body of a woman at a hospital Thursday, hours after he was detained while leaving a meeting with the same woman, officials said.

Kevorkian handed emergency room workers a paper identifying the woman as Nancy DeSoto of Bourbonnais, Ill., William Beaumont Hospital spokeswoman Yvette Monet said. Earlier, his attorney had said Kevorkian had been meeting with Mrs. DeSoto on Wednesday night when he was stopped by police as he left a motel parking lot.

The Oakland Press reported that Mrs. DeSoto, 55, was a florist afflicted with multiple sclerosis.
